Legacy Gift 2024

Participation Drive
69 students have left their legacy so far!

Give back so others can go forward.

At DePaul it’s been a tradition for our graduates to think bigger than themselves and to help pay it forward for current students who may need help next year. You have a chance to join your 2024 classmates in leaving a legacy by donating to support any area of DePaul that you are passionate about. Every gift, no matter the size, will make a difference. Once you make your donation you will receive a legacy cord to wear proudly at commencement.



  • Leave a legacy for future Blue Demons to receive the same world-class education and be part of the legacy gift tradition.
  • Receive a legacy cord to wear at commencement to celebrate being part of a DePaul tradition.
  • Invest in the value of your DePaul degree and help shape the university that you want future students to experience.



There are many options on the right, and you choose the area you wish to support. You can choose from funds that support your college or school, or choose from one of these funds:

  • The General Scholarship Fund is a critical source of funding for student scholarships
  • The Finish Line Scholarship Fund is designed to help students who are close to completing a degree but need an extra boost of support
  • The Basic Needs Hub is available to any DePaul student in need
  • The Fund for Multicultural Student Success supports DePaul’s efforts to improve the retention and graduation rates of students of color and first-generation students, undocumented students, and students with marginalized genders and sexualities
  • The Fund for Student Affairs supports all of the programming and activities that make being a DePaul student such a fun and special experience
  • The Fund for Mission and Ministry supports programs focused on community service, faith formation, and leadership development
  • The Student Veterans Gift Fund helps us support those who have served our country, with a focus on community building and supportive services that help with the transition to college and beyond

Class of 2024, leave your legacy with a gift in honor of your graduating class.
